If Inter Milan and Bayern Munich cannot agree on a purchase price for Ivan Perisic, the Italian club would be willing to offer the Bavarians another one-year loan agreement for the 31-year-old. With the Bavarians currently unwilling to break the bank this summer, another loan for Perisic could be more palatable for the Rekordmeister.
The rumored purchase price for Perisic is €20 million, but Bayern Munich has been hesitant to spend in COVID-19 financial climate, especially as the club measures an expensive play for Manchester City’s Leroy Sane. Per Corriere dello Sport, Inter Milan would be willing to let Perisic stay in Germany for another year, as long as Bayern Munich pays Perisic’s salary. Perisic’s pay is rumored to be approximately €4.6 million per year:
A decision will have to be made by the end of the month to know whether the Germans are willing to keep the outside player, sent on loan from Inter and tied to a price of about twenty million. On the negotiating table, another possibility will be included: the loan of Perisic to Bayern for another season.
Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte reportedly does not think Perisic is a fit for his system and was allegedly interested in a proposed swap of Perisic and cash for Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso. While those whispers that been silenced (for now), another year of Perisic on loan could give Bayern Munich a stable, dependable, and productive option to bolster its roster depth.
